Live wedding band

What is included in a wedding package?

Wedding band
Experienced, reliable, polite musicians
who will turn up & be ready to play for the time stated on the booking form - it cannot be stressed highly enough how important this is. As an organiser of a special event you want to feel confident that everything is going to run smoothly.

Wedding band
Your choice of songs to be played on the night
- you get to tick the songlist & make suggestions for the live sets & CDs in-between or just leave it up to the band. Every function is different, hence, The Groove Company play a different set for each occasion tailored to suit your guests preferences - unlike other bands that play the same set every night.

Wedding entertainment

Further options:

Wedding band
Would you like something different for the wedding breakfast or drinks reception? If you require something smaller & quieter how about The Groove Company duo (piano & sax / flute) playing instrumental versions of pop & jazz songs. Or how about Sax On TV (female saxophone quartet), playing TV & film themes in this unique style to keep your guests amused.

Wedding band
If you would like the band to play outside that is not a problem - the only things we request are adequate covering (approx. 16 feet by 8 feet for the 4 piece) to protect against rain or extreme sun. Also, a stable power supply within a reasonable distance of the stage area. Problems can arise if it is necessary to run long power cables to the stage area.

Wedding band
It is not necessary to have a raised stage area although it does look better. The Groove Company do not supply staging or dancefloors, these would have to be hired in from a separate source.

Points to consider:

If you would like to see the band live before making a booking please contact us to see if there are any suitable engagements in the diary that potential clients can be invited to. Generally it can be very difficult to invite people along as The Groove Company perform primarily at private functions. I'm sure you can understand that our clients would not be happy with loads of strangers attending their event. If we feel that the engagement is being held at a suitable location then we can inform you of dates & times to attend. Be wary if bands say to you, "yes, come along to this gig or that gig" - are they going to have people coming along to your wedding? Alternatively, we do have a demo CD available on request - the CD is the same as the soundclips on the website. The demo is a true live representation of the bands performance, unlike other demos that you may receive that have been polished in a studio.
